Snow and Kitchen Stress

Hello! I hope you all had a lovely weekend! We had lots of snow the end of last week and into the weekend so we were very much enjoying it and happy that it wasn't as bad as it could have been which would have cancelled all our weekend plans (birthday parties and family visits).

The past week or so we have been busy designing and sorting our our new kitchen which will be installed in a few weeks time. It has been an on going project for about 6 months. We knew we wanted a new kitchen as even though ours looks nice it really isn't usable and is quite old, but finding a company that could design a kitchen around our needs proved almost impossible and in the end we designed the whole thing ourselves. We have spent the evenings in the last week firming up all the little details of the kitchen renovation and boy has it stressed me out! 

On Saturday morning the builder who will be in charge of the whole renovation came over to get an idea of what he was going to be doing and it all just felt so overwhelming. I have never had to be in charge of such a massive renovation before (the hub of family life is the kitchen after all) and I would hate for it to not turn out right.

Thankfully we'll not have to live in the house while the renovations are taking place as I really don't know how we would be able to do it especially with the two little ones.

So in the next few weeks in addition to getting ready for the big trip back to the States for my sister's wedding we are also getting ready for the big overhaul in our house. Not to mention the possible 'Big Boy Bed' change over for Francis!

Any of you ever done a massive renovation on your house while also planning other major things (holidays, giving birth, etc...)?
